- +
-In some cases a virus scanner may incorrectly detect files as being viruses. If this happens with a VPOP3-integrated virus scanner it will prevent the incoming attachment from being received. This can especially happen if you have the virus scanner configured to detect PUAs (potentially unwanted applications). +
- +
-Starting with VPOP3 v6.17 there are a couple of ways around this problem +
- +
-  - Use [[reference:​virus_scan_filter_script|Lua scripting]] +
-  - Use [[http://www.pscs.co.uk/​manual/​index.html?​attachment_processing_advanced_rules.html|attachment filtering]] +
- +
-If the advanced attachment filter rules set variables **virusfilterregexp** or **virusfilter** then VPOP3 will compare the detected virus name (not the attachment name) with the value of those variables. **virusfilterregexp** will be treated as a regular expression and **virusfilter** will be treated as a wildcard string +
- +
-An example of an advanced attachment filter could be: +
- +
-  { +
-   ​rulename skip eicar from known sender +
-   ​variable senderaddr text test@pscs.co.uk +
-   ​setifmatch virusfilter set *eicar* +
-  } +
- +
-or +
- +
-  { +
-   ​rulename skip eicar from known sender +
-   ​variable senderaddr text test@pscs.co.uk +
-   ​setifmatch virusfilterregexp set /eicar/i +
-  } +
